about this painting:
The flower that follows the sun
Symbolism of a sunflower
How much do you know about sunflowers? On the one hand, they look very simple; however, on the other hand, they are absolutely beautiful flowers that remind you of the sun (no wonder they are called sunflowers). Did you know that for some people, a sunflower is not just a flower, but also a symbol?
- In China it is a symbol of longevity and has a magic power.
- In Japan it is the symbol of the last summer month- August.
- In Europe it symbolizes gratitude.
- For Christians it’s a symbol of a pious believer who trusts God in everything.
A beautiful legend
There is a beautiful legend according to which gods cast a spell on people for having been forgotten. They covered the sky with clouds, so that nobody could see the sun. People started to get sick. They couldn’t harvest anything and began to die. Then, they remembered about their gods and prayed for their grace. Suddenly, one day they finally saw the sun and a god’s hand reaching out through the clouds. Their gods gave people seeds that soon grew into beautiful sunflowers. They wanted to let people know that they should never lose their faith and never lose the sun again. Sunflowers always follow the sun- even in the darkest rainy or foggy day their yellow “heads” will always face it. No wonder the sunflower is also a symbol of happiness and optimism, loyalty and dignity. Due to their never-give-up attitude, they have become a part of many famous masters of world art, and have been called “the flowers of the sun”.
Bring some magic to your interior with such amazingly painted sunflowers. Brighten your everyday life by just simply purchasing this fantastic canvas so masterfully painted by Leonid Afremov in his unique palette knife technique! This painting will look best in the kitchen or a dining room. However, make sure it doesn’t get water or fire damaged as oil canvases are very sensitive to steam and are highly flammable. You can order it to be rolled in a tube or gallery wrapped and ready to hang as soon as you receive it.
